The Huntsville Stars

The Huntsville Stars are the Rocket City’s minor league baseball team of the Southern League. With thousands of fans throughout the state, the Stars could very well become one of your favorite baseball teams in no time!

The history of the team began in 1985 when the Joe W. Davis Stadium was built and the Evansville Triplets were relocated to Huntsville, changing their name to the Huntsville Stars. The name was given after the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and it couldn’t have been more appropriate for such a sensational team.

For 25 years the Huntsville Stars has produced A-list players such as:

  • Jackie Robinson
  • Don Mincher
  • Tim Belcher
  • Jose Canseco
  • Eric Chavez
  • Corey Hart
  • Miguel Tejada
  • Rickie Weeks
  • Mark McGwire
  • Darren Lewis
  • Ramon Hernandez

From 1985 through 1998 the Huntsville Stars played in the Southern League as the Double-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics and won the League title two times. However, since 1999 the Milwaukee Brewers became the new Stars affiliates and managed to give the team their third Southern League title in 2001. In 2009 the Huntsville Stars qualified to the play-offs by winning the first-half title.

If you’re looking to have some fun at the ballpark and watch some quality baseball, The Joe, as we Huntsvillians like to call it, is the place to go to. The stadium seats over 10,000 people and has tempting promotions for you to benefit from all the time. From Military Monday to Family Funday on Sundays, you’ll have a game to watch every week! Check the stadium’s calendar to get the promotion of the day.

Whether you go to The Joe for a picnic, a birthday party for your kids, a concert or a Huntsville Stars game, fun and good times are guaranteed!
